LOST GENERATION emerged from the local music scene in Nashville. It has been an uphill battle due to the fact that other bands were following the latest trends to get noticed. They live for the music and the fans they've gathered have shown that their brand of pumping Hard Rock is loved and appreciated. In 2004, they signed with JetSpeed Records in Hollywood, CA. In 2009, they signed with FYF Records in Nashville, TN. LOST GENERATION is influenced by Ozzy, Dio, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, AC/DC, Scorpions, Judas Priest, Queensryche and Motley Crüe.

“’High-speed riffs and head-banging thrills erupt from Lost Generation’s electric performance to warp the listener’s perception of reality into a spiraling frenzy of madness.’”
The Akademia - Akademia Music Awards
“Nashville, Tennessee is a Mecca for musicians and bands trying to make their mark upon the music industry. While many people associate Nashville with its booming country music scene, this city has much more to offer than just that one genre. The Nashville rock scene is just as vibrant, with new bands constantly popping up. One band in particular has been part of the city's flourishing music scene for almost two decades. Lost Generation...”
Anna Libby - Metal Overdose
“All today’s technology and such gave us the impression that this sound had already disappeared from the music industry forever, but Lost Generation is bringing it back again.
In their record, No Mercy, the sound of distorted guitars and the overall production give you the impression that you are listening to a record from the 70s or 80s. A perfect example is “Her Hair Was Still Alive,” with heavy guitar riffs and scratch combining with some quite simple drum beats and vocals. It’s as if Axl Rose met Jack White...”

Sur Rod - ReverbNation
“Lost Generation would have been a hot commodity in the 80s, and they're hot today. Great sound influenced by some of the masters of metal and party-style hard rock. Ranko adds a European touch to an AC/DC-type vocal style. Very cool. The music thumps, bounces and grinds away.”
Howard Lawrence - ReverbNation
“Normally this wouldn't be my choice of music, but the track called "IF" is one of the coolest tracks Ive heard in a long time, its pace, the guitar, the soulful accent on the vocals is amazing. I would love to get hold of the instrumental or better still the individual layers for this track. My 3 main songs were inspired & Improvised over the backings I used & Ide love to do a song to this, but my voice is very low at times & Ide need layers to be able to level it all, either way.. that tracks EPIC :D”

“I always come here thinking I'll listen to some great rock and leave..but I always end up staying for every note of every song :-). You are the best and my pick of the day is the dark and beautiful, 'My Love'.”
Delaney Simpson - ReverbNation
"My Love" haunts me throughout the night, when I hear this gorgeous piece of yours. Just another proof of your ultra mystical talent!

“With Lost Generation, we don't know if Fitzgerald or Hemingway will be in attendance, but there will definitely be some no-b.s., hair-slinging rock 'n' roll. With a Yugoslavian frontman sounding like a mix between Judas Priest's Rob Halford and pre-MTV Ozzy, they're a little weird but definitely rockin'.
“Lost Generation are an unstoppable live act, due in large part to Yugoslavian vocalist R. Curic's refusal to tone down the dramatic intensity of stage moves he perfected in arenas across Eastern Europe. The ankle deep introspection revealed in crowd sing-alongs like "We Are Fucked Up" guarantees a good time.”
C.D. - The Nashville Scene
“Lost Generation. Nothing says “romance” like a splitting earful of Sabbath-style thud metal pounded home by a Yugoslavian frontman. So use this occasion to congratulate Springwater booker Kara Nicks and her new husband Phillip Lambert on their recent exchange of Celtic wedding bands. Throw bouquets to openers Ruse and Apathy Orange at 9:30 p.m.”
